Venus Williams withdrew today from next week's JPMorgan Chase Open at The Home Depot Center because of a sore left wrist.

Williams, who missed this week's Acura Classic in Carlsbad, apparently re-injured the wrist shortly after Wimbledon and continues to have pain.

Her sister, Serena, is entered in the weeklong event at The Home Depot Center. Serena Williams, who returned to the tour in Cincinnati three weeks ago, also withdrew from the Acura Classic, saying doctors recommended she take her comeback slowly.

Lindsay Davenport of Laguna Beach, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova head the 56-player field.
